AMAZING! The human body has disease fighting abilities. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> And why the scientists think humans can't utilize the antibody when hardly anyone ever gets the flu is beyond me. Maybe if I read their science in more detail I would understand it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The key antibody, known as CR6261, was derived from donor blood by Crucell scientists. <b>They initially thought CR6261 might be rare, but they have since found other donors with it. They now suspect that CR6261 might be relatively common, but that the human body doesn't generally produce enough to use it efficiently.</b></td>

Yeah, we all produce it for no real reason whatsoever.
